I spent the day at Tate Britain today, with my daughter who is studying the Pre-Raphaelites. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood is not my favourite group of artists but it’s interesting to look closely at something that you might not otherwise have made the time for! This is ‘The Lady of Shalott’, 1888, by John William Waterhouse. Although the overall impression is one of great detail, the brushwork is actually quite loose, as you can see from these details.
Also saw an impressive new installation by Cerith Wyn Evans: ‘Forms in Space… By Light (in Time)’. It has given me some ideas for new work!
